15 Aug Is Brixton the new hip London?
When you think Shoreditch is too hipster. Or already too much gentrified. Or too much part of The City. Then Brixton is the place for you. It’s colourful, it’s authentic. It’s real. It’s a bit further away from the city center, four stops on the Victoria tube from Victoria station. But worth the trip.
The market is full of exotic ingredients. And Pop Brixton is the sea container pop-up area that has the vibe that Boxpark Shoreditch always had. A great area with a great atmosphere.
Don’t take me wrong. I love Shoreditch. It’s still my favorite part of London. Every stay in London I try to spend some time there. But you see it’s slowly being eaten by The City. So I am enjoying it now, but it will be different some years from now. And then Brixton could very well be the Shoreditch successor.
